  •  ACA will reduce costs in 2014? (5+ / 0-)

    I do know this about 2014: I will be required to buy insurance. I wish I could afford it now. Actually I wish I could afford health care. Now I know what you're going to say. You're going to say that low-income people will receive a subsidy. Unfortunately for the self-employed, gross income is equal to all receipts. I know this because I was denied food stamps and was told this. Which means that say I spend $20K to make $40K. Say I also receive another $4K in purchases which are refunded or chargebacked. That's $20K income. Except it's calculated as $44K gross income.

    Even if this were not the case, I do believe that in 2014 medical costs and insurance will be higher than today.

    Same as it always was.
